Waxing lyrical since 1987
Long line cotton Kurtas look great over skinny jeans, wide leg trousers or even leggings. More tailored than the traditional Kaftan they are available in four sizes.
Made from 100 per cent cotton, our long sleeved shirts have both masculine and feminine appeal.
With wooden buttons from collar to hem, two more wooden buttons along the cuff, discreet elbow patches and a chest pocket our shirts are hard wearing and practical as well as stunningly attractive.
Each shirt is lovingly hand-crafted with exceptional artwork and that’s why no two are identical, but our image is a good representation of the garment you will receive.
Our casual 100% cotton trousers feature a tapered leg, two hip pockets and an elasticated waist.
We've been making them for over twenty years and they get more popular every year.
Our famous fishermans' smocks are made right here on the Isle of Skye from beautiful, colourful handloomed cotton designed and woven for us by Barbara Sansoni.
Occasionally (and only occasionally) if we don't have your choice in stock we will make it to order and there may be a short delay in dispatch. We will keep you informed if this happens.
Also, garments purchased may have some slight variation to these shown on the web site.
Cowl and Open Neck £78
Zip Jacket £80
BAKING JUST GOT BETTER !
Our patchwork batik aprons have been selling like hotcakes in our shop. Here's a chance for our online customers to spice things up in the kitchen. Each apron comes nestled in its own drawstring bag ... also in beautiful batik cotton!
Here on the Isle of Skye, after a long day on the croft in the searing heat, we like to pour ourselves a tall gin & tonic, slip gracefully in to a kaftan & relax on the porch in the cool summer evening.
It’s usually about this time that the alarm goes off breaking us from this dream and it’s time to get up.
We have been making our wrap skirts for years. They are easy to wear and move beautifully whilst you are twirling on the dance floor!
Available in two or three lengths (depending upon design):-
Mid Length £37
Long Length £39
Our wall hangings have been at the core of what we do since the early days. Each design has been carefully replicated from original celtic art pieces found in sources such as the Books of Kells and Lindisfarne.
Every design has a story to tell and comes ready to hang on that blank bit of wall thats been bothering you for ages.
Artist's Choice Wall Hangings: Prices vary
